Assault on Security

“A place like a library is generally deemed ‘safe place’. Providing an unarmed security guard to a public venue, is like placing a band aid on wound that requires stitches. The guard should be properly trained to deescalate first but be ready to use necessary force & tools (firearm) to disable the threat.  Unfortunately in this case, the guard didn’t have the proper tools and she tragically lost her life doing her job.” — Frank Costa, President Nexgen Protection Services.
